Explaining modified 2-min walk test outcomes in Veterans with traumatic or nontraumatic lower-limb amputation

Brian J. Loyd, PT, DPT, et al.

This investigation provides important evidence for the care of Veterans with lower-limb amputations by demonstrating that differences in ambulatory mobility exist between Veterans with traumatic and nontraumatic amputation. These differences provide important insight to recovery of mobility and the rehabilitation process following lower-limb amputation. Furthermore, this study identified important changes in gait???associated with decreased ambulatory mobility???that will serve as intervention targets for rehabilitation. These findings also generate hypotheses for future examination of impairments often seen in Veterans with both traumatic and nontraumatic lower-limb amputation.
